Hi Ian, yes, definitely. I won’t visit Angola because of the visa hassles as an example.
Another example is the US. I normally go once a year in November. However I’ve now got to fill in this ESTA nonsense and pay (while the Americans can visit here without visa, fingerprinting etc) for the pleasure. Our new Chairman has agreed we can now participate by FaceTime, so saves me several ‘000’s and is in turn another small loss to the US/NY economy.
My spend won’t register a bip, but if 10,000 others think like me, it adds up!
PS. We appointed a new head at Eltham today. Paul is retiring next year. Exciting times for the school!
